OSR131 Community Edition: Science Communication Workshop Podcast [EN]

This is somewhat of an experiment, as this episode is not at all coming from us but was produced by Lindsay Petley-Ragan. Lindsay has been a science communicator for quite some time now and has worked for a number of science (-related) organizations. Over the last winter semester she hosted a science communication workshop for graduate students at Humboldt University in Berlin and one of the assignments for the students was to interview a scientist or make a podcast. So Lindsay got into touch with us late last year and asked whether the outcome might be of interest for us. And since she could push the interviews a bit into the direction of open science, we gladly agreed to publish the result(s) here. So, this is the episode produced by Lindsay with interviews conducted by Kata Katz, Paul Rikeit and Gina Doerpholz.

OSR128 Library Carpentry with Chris Erdmann [EN]

Together with Chris, who is the current Library Carpentry Community and Development Director, we dive into what Library Carpentry is, how it came to being, what it does and where it heads to.
